You’re too young for HGH therapy, and you’re too old to go through another creatine phase. Not only that, but pre-workout gives you anxiety and keeps you up all night. What’s a dude that’s just looking to knock out some bench supposed to do? Beets. The answer is beets, apparently.
According to a new study from the ScienceDaily, a recent study conducted by the American Journal of Physiology-Regulatory, Integrative and Comparative Physiology showed that regular consumption of beet juice had positive cardiovascular effects on subjects during exercise and led to increased endurance. Those sneaky little bastards that you’ve managed to avoid all your life are the key to you throwing big boy weight around. Who would’ve thought? I guess I do remember hearing somewhere that it’s a fact that bears eat beets. Not real sure, though.
According to the researchers, the findings suggest that beet juice can be used as a dietary nutraceutical supplement to enhance oxygen delivery to the muscles and reduce the work the heart does during exercise. Exercise can be “performed at a given workload for a longer period of time before the onset of fatigue,” the researchers added.
This is a real game changer. As a guy that’s constantly looking for new ways to maintain an edge, I’m willing to try something as unappealing as beet juice. Judging by their findings, I’m guessing beet juice is just an all around solid way to land some much needed mental focus throughout the day. So what if you’re the weirdo sipping on blood red juice all day? You’ll be crushing spreadsheets and super-setting back and shoulders after work. Hell, you may even turn into pushups-at-your-desk guy.
Kidding, you don’t want to be that guy. Just take a spin class..
